Unlike almost all other triathlon training camps, we have the same qualified and experienced triathlon coach on hand throughout your stay. Richard is a qualified British Triathlon and British Cycling Coach. He also has vast knowledge and expertise gained as an elite athlete (swimming and triathlon) and RAF Physical Training Instructor. Whilst in the RAF he was part of the relay team who broke the world record for the Belgium to England Channel crossing and has completed numerous other English Channel swims.

His additional experiences as a lecturer in sports science and as aYMCA qualified personal trainer give him exceptional practical and theoretical knowledge. In addition to his coaching Richard still competes regularly in all disciplines and is the head Tri Coach for the prestigious Triathlon Catalan club.

Hands-On Tri Coaching

Richard adopts a fairly hands-on, supportive coaching approach with all athletes staying on a triathlon training camp. He provides expert coaching to help all triathletes improve both technically and physically across all three disciplines (swim, bike and run). He also helps by improving technique, by helping you understand basic bio-mechanics and by teaching you to use your senses to train. He will help increase your understanding of each discipline both individually and as the whole sport of triathlon.

Richard’s Commitment To Our Athletes

‘I approach each client as an individual. So no matter what your triathlon goal is, your needs will be provided for. I design each week’s programme around the athletes we have and provide you with the most experienced and professional coaching possible during your time with us.

We create a relaxed environment and take care of everything else so that you can just enjoy your triathlon training.’
